Last week I chanced upon the most beautiful vintage flower fairies book (by Cicely Mary Barker) from the 1940’s. The illustrations are exquisite. I won’t deny it I’m a lover of all things magical and flowery so the minute I set eyes upon it on the shelf, my heart sang. It was my initial idea to frame each individual flower fairy and sell them as collectors items in my shop. I know they would sell and I would make a considerable profit but I literally CANNOT part with them. The pound signs in my eyes couldn’t sway my heart. They capture my imagination and speak to my inner child. I’m going to hang onto it for now and keep it for a very special little girl (ME! oh alright then, D) but I thought I’d share a few with you.
It’s been a busy few weeks. Actually that is a major understatement. We’ve moved house, welcomed a beautiful new baby (my sisters) all while organising Christmas (wouldn’t it be great if Santa were real?) and keeping life and routines carrying along as normal (ish). This year I decided I’d like to craft some homemade presents too, I don’t like to make it easy for myself, do I? To honour our first baby boy in the family, Levi Jack Turner, I decided to make a word frame for him full of things that little boys love! What do you think?
This is one of my girly word frames that I made for my daughter a little while ago. I custom make these for little boys and little girls, complete with all the things that they love! A very personalised, fun addition to their room. For more information feel free to send me an email or check out my shop in 2012!
